Small Town Rumors
Small Town Rumors | Carolyn Brown
13 posts | 4 read | 2 to read
From New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown comes a funny heartache of a novel about overcoming the past, confronting the future, and defying all expectations. Everyone is talking about Jennie Sue Baker and the mess she made of her life in New York. The former high school queen bee--and wealthy darling of Bloom, Texas--has returned home after all these years, riding on a common bus and bearing two bounced alimony checks. In a town that thrives on gossip, Jennie's fall from grace has shamed her mother, set the town buzzing, and caused old, jealous enemies to whisper in delight. They say she's taken a job as a housekeeper, gotten a garage apartment, and might be crushing on Rick Lawson, a simple farmer with modest dreams. As romance starts to bud, Jennie relishes what it means to follow her heart, find real new friends, and finally be herself--regardless of all the lying town chatter. But fate has another twist in store. Rumor has it that Jennie now stands to lose what matters most...unless she can convince Rick of one true thing--and that's love.

4/5. This is such a fun and funny read. I loved all of the characters, the sisters Nadine & Lettie especially (they were hilarious!).

I wish I can get 4 hours free today so I can finish this book. Alas, there's just too many things to do ☹

Bless your soul, you've got your head in the clouds
You made a fool out of me
And, boy, you're bringing me down
You made my heart melt, yet I'm cold to the core
But rumor has it I'm the one you're leaving her for

This was such a sweet story. Jennie Sue returns to the small town of Bloom TX, where she grew up and her parents still live. A town where everyone knows everyone else, and all of their business. We walk with Jennie Sue as she tries to put her past behind her, repair a broken relationship with her mother, and as she finds the people who finally help her realize where home is. Shed a few tears reading this one. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

I loved this book! It‘s about friendship, being free to be yourself, and some sweet romance. It was time well spent, and I‘ll be looking for more by Carolyn Brown.

My view tonight. It‘s raining (again), and the kids are in another rehearsal for the Christmas Show NICU fundraiser, which is Saturday. It‘s been such a hectic week that I‘m sitting in the car where it‘s quiet, listening to the rain. I think I‘m going to pull out my Kindle Paperwhite and read the tagged book if I don‘t fall asleep first! 😂

Anyone else who has had Monday every day this week? 🤣

BookwormM Me I know how you feel 8mo
jenniferajanes @BookwormM I‘m sorry you‘ve had a rough week too! I hope things are looking up for you now! 8mo

While my daughter finishes Christmas at Harrington‘s, I‘m going to read this one. It‘s my first book by this author. (Borrowed through Kindle Unlimited.)

Cinfhen I love Kindle Unlimited!!! Such a great feature 8mo
jenniferajanes @Cinfhen I‘m doing a 3-month trial for $0.99 right now. I think I may keep it! There are a lot of books I‘m interested in reading, and it‘s saving me money! 😂😂😂 8mo
Cinfhen Same!!! I have no clue what it costs once the trial is over 🙄I hope it‘s affordable 🙏🏻 8mo

jenniferajanes @Cinfhen I think it‘s $9.99 a month. I normally spend more than that a month on sale books for Kindle, so it helps that a lot of books I want to read are in KU! 8mo
Cinfhen Ugh! I don‘t think I‘d spend $9.99 a month 😢😢hoping they run some holiday special 🤞🏼 8mo
jenniferajanes @Cinfhen That would be awesome! 🤞🏻We spend more than that a month in books, so I‘m thinking of keeping it. It‘s month to month, so if it doesn‘t continue to save me money, I‘ll cancel. 8mo
Cinfhen I definitely spend more than $10 a month on books too but I still don‘t stop myself from buying books even with the Unlimited selections 🙊I think the Unlimited books expire when the month is over??? Is that true??? 8mo
jenniferajanes @Cinfhen 😂 I understand. It‘s so hard to stop buying books when there are so many great ones out there! What do you mean by expire? 8mo
Cinfhen I thought the Unlimited Books are removed from your device at the end of every month whether you‘ve read them or not. Sort of like a library loan.... 8mo
jenniferajanes @Cinfhen 🤔 I don‘t think so. I know I added some to my device in November, and they‘re still there. I‘ve had to make it a point to return all the books I‘ve read after I finished. None were auto-returned. The only issue I‘ve had was trying to “check out” more than 10. Then I was told I would have to return something first. 😂 8mo
Cinfhen Hahaha!! That‘s good to know!!! Thanks for the info xx 8mo
jenniferajanes @Cinfhen You‘re welcome! I wish I had more definitive answers. We need for a KU expert to chime in! What about you, @gjoyellis ? 8mo
